T Rowe Price sees AuM slide 13%

Businessman_graph_downT Rowe Price's assets under management were $454 billion on 30 September, a decline of 13% compared with the previous quarter as the summer volatility took its toll. Market depreciation accounted for most of the decline, $64.8 billion, with the remaining $2.6 billion caused by outflows. T Rowe Price blamed the outflows on third-party intermediaries and institutional investors reducing risk in their portfolios. However, the company's business was stronger than last year. Profits were up nearly 10% compared with the third quarter of 2010 and revenues increased 16%. T Rowe Price president James AC Kennedy said: “In this environment we remain vigilant about our expense management, both for the remainder of this year and as we plan for 2012.” ©2011 funds europe
